Lately, every little step Bobby Brown takes ends badly. According to the LAPD, the “My Prerogative” singer was arrested early this morning in Los Angeles for driving under the influence. “Bobby Brown was arrested and charged with DUI at 1 a.m. this morning,” Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson Venus Hall told RapFix.“He was pulled over at the intersection of Corbin Avenue and Venture Blvd. He has since been released on his own recognizance.”
Police are not releasing information as to why the 43-year old R&B icon was pulled over, although it has been reported by TMZ that he was weaving between lanes in his car, prompting a police cruiser to pull him over for suspected DUI. After detecting a strong odor of alcohol, officers administered a field sobriety test and arrested the former member of New Edition after he failed.
Brown was previously arrested for DUI in the San Fernando Valley back in March. That arrest came just four days after the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office released the results of its autopsy of ex-wife Whitney Houston. The singer plead no contest to a lesser misdemeanor DUI charge in April and was placed on probation for three years and went to a alcohol abuse treatment center over the summer.
